Your Song by Elton John is one of the benchmark songs of Pop-Piano, placing Piano-driven pop songs firmly on the map. In this tutorial you'll learn the exact piano parts as per played on the record by Sir Elton John himself. And a few variations taken from some of his live renditions of Your Song.
Elton is awesome. Your Song, his very first big hit, is too. It truly is one of those tunes that defined a certain sound for the piano in contemporary music. Elton, (and "Your Song") is therefore truly a grandfather, a trendsetter of our beloved Pop-Piano approach, playing by chords and patterns.
In this tutorial I'll show you:
- How to play the exact parts of Your Song as per played by Elton John himself
- How this is all translated and learned most conveniently through the chords & pattern approach
- Some juiced up versions of basic triads combined with cool, typical "Elton"-style patterns
Have fun learning how to play "Your Song" on piano!
